Best of Our Counties aims to source the tastiest food and drink from the counties we trade in. Whether that is through tenant farms, local suppliers or small food producers, they want to keep their supply chain as local as possible.
The Butchers only sell meat sourced direct from a local farm and ensure the finest, high quality cuts are available for its customers to enjoy with minimal impact to the environment. The Delicatessens stock cheeses, freshly prepared pies, pastries, sausage rolls, scotch eggs, handmade ready meals, tarts and handmade pâtés all made by Best of Our Counties local suppliers.
The Midcounties Co-operative’s philosophy is simple: fresh, local, seasonal. It aims to source from the home or neighbouring county of each store. Inevitably it is sometimes necessary to go a little further to source food when demand is high and local sources cannot supply them, but they always aim to work with small, quality local producers. This not only reduces food miles but also means its customers know exactly where their food comes from, with peace of mind that it is of the highest quality and has been sustainably sourced. In store you will see local ranges which are highlighted with “The Best of our Counties” branding.
